An Italian diplomat has come under fire in Libya's second city, Benghazi, but escaped unharmed.

Guido De Sanctis, the Italian consul in the city, was travelling in his bullet-proof car when unidentified gunmen opened fire.

He was killed in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi last September.
